Red Syrah
Producer Notes

Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley.

Issue Issue 148

($375) Saturated ruby. Pungent red and dark berries on the nose, with exotic floral and spice qualities expanding with air. Sweet, deep and incisive raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are energized by tangy minerals and pick up smoke and floral notes on the back end. The lush and creamy finish leaves a trail of spice and red fruit notes in its wake. This wine is built for cellaring but is showing a lot of complexity today.

Made in the style of the 2010, the massive 2005 Hermitage Ex Voto offers searing minerality and crushed-rock nuances as well as tons of black raspberries, licorice, toasted spice and charcoal. Full-bodied, incredibly concentrated, with a wall of sweet tannin, this behemoth nevertheless stays nicely focused, pure and classic on the finish. Give it another 4-5 years and enjoy bottles over the following 30-40+ years.

Drink Dates 2010-2025

Rather sleek, with fresh, very rounded plum, cherry and blackberry fruit held together by notes of black tea, sweet earth and hoisin sauce. The texture is polished and the finish very long, with echoes of mocha flittering throughout. There's plenty of grip in reserve, and this should blossom in the cellar. Far more refined than the 2003, though not quite as dynamic.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
